First Baptist Church Lewisville
Why We Love This Opportunity
First Baptist Church Lewisville is a wonderful opportunity to carry a legacy that spans generations of Great Commission ministry in a thriving community. The beautiful facilities, robust programs, talented staff team, committed congregation, and healthy financial status are wonderful building blocks to grow an incredibly healthy ministry for decades to come.
This is a chance to develop a unifying vision for a strong church, building both a healthy inward and outward focus. Inwardly, to equip the congregation with a foundation of discipleship and in the ability to share their faith with the community. Outwardly, to position the robust programs into an outward-focused posture that is effective at reaching the unchurched world in the Greater Lewisville area today.
The congregation is looking for a pastor who will lead them to even greater levels of effectiveness in their community. This is an opportunity to serve for several decades with a loving congregation.
About This Organization
First Baptist Church Lewisville is a multigenerational church in Dallas/Fort Worth known as the beautiful church with two steeples. With a rich heritage of gospel-centric preaching, a legacy of robust programs, and classic, updated, and beautiful facilities, FBCL is positioned to continue the Kingdom Impact for which they have been known for generations.
At the heart of First Baptist Church, Lewisville is a congregation committed to discipleship, fellowship, and the desire to be a light in the community. Between the 2200 seat auditorium, the children’s wing was built in 2019, the recently renovated student space, and ample room for onsite ministries, the 176,000sf facility has room to house ministries for today and the future. 80% of the Sunday morning attendance is a part of Sunday Morning Bible Studies, providing a deep sense of belonging.
FBCL have 550 in-person each week and 150 online, with a 2021 budget of $3.7. They want to be known for helping people commit to Jesus, grow in their walk with Him, and meet needs in our community and around the world. They are praying for a Senior Pastor who can lead them into the next chapter of fruitful ministry.
First Baptist Church Lewisville is looking for an energetic pastor who can connect well with young families. This person must be an excellent leader, then a solid bible teacher, and then a loving shepherd. First and foremost, the Senior Pastor must be a strong leader. While FBCL has a proud history, they need someone to galvanize every ministry and staff member around a new vision. This person must define a vision, communicate well, and engage the congregation. They must be humble, gentle, and patient in their approach.
Second, the successful candidate must be a solid teacher. Excellent Bible teaching has been a distinctive feature of FBCL for years and must continue. Finally, the successful candidate must be a loving shepherd. While there is a team in place to be the primary shepherds of the congregation (including a deacon body), the Pastor must shepherd staff and leaders with love, grace, and presence. FBCL desires for the Senior Pastor to be approachable and genuinely connect with church members.
